Ok here is my rant. People complained that they could not get into the Sunday Core Raid group to do the raids. So I created a Saturday event for the same raid. Any vet is welcome.  We can set the dungeon to the lowest vet level in normal mode to learn the raid and then progress the raid to a higher level. Tonight we were unable to fill the raid. We had 4 to 5 people who were not from the Sunday group.  The rest were from Sunday's core group. Any one of these people would have drop the raid to allow a new person to go but we still could not fill it. I will not beg anyone to come raid with us. The raid forms up at 445 pm with step off at 5pm. It is on the calendar a week in advance. I will not break up Sundays group. I have a list of alternates who fill in when that group is short with the chance of eventually getting into the main core group. I have given everyone the chance to raid with the guild. If there is not enough people wanting to do Saturday trials then we will use that time for something else. Your choice. 

Thanks to everyone who came out tonight.

Just posting here to encourage people to join.  I plan on coming every Saturday that I can - unless I'm sick like last night.  I'm sorry you couldn't fill up the group.

Quickest way into the Sunday group would be sign up as an alt for Sunday and attend every Saturday raid (i would think).  Next person drops from the Sunday raid and your number is called.

It's this simple:  We event leaders are here for you.  We are dedicating our time to running events for everyone.  If you want something, speak up... and then follow up.  Because actions speak louder than words, and if nobody shows we will take it that the event wasn't really that interesting.  (If you speak up about different times, or anything like that it helps a ton!)

Prissy is at that point with these Saturday runs.  The number of people speaking up doesn't match those who show up.  This is your chance to run trials without waiting for a slot in the Sunday group.  There's really no difference other than the set group.  The trials run smoothly on Saturday given enough people.  The old Wednesday group exceeded the efficiency of the Sunday group a few times, but rarely had enough people (back when Eiahn was running it.)  You could be competing with the Sunday group fairly easily, should people put in the effort.

We from the Sunday group, and the event leaders in general are supporting the rest of the people.  We are trying to do what we can to make interesting events for people as we hear demand.  If you don't speak up, we don't know what you want.  If you don't follow up, we can only assume that the demand wasn't really there.  That's why we are always asking what we can do, for feedback, and trying to be open to communication here.

In short, sorry if this felt a little like a rant.  I do not mean to attack or upset anyone.  I'm merely saying that we need your help to make events succeed.  Prissy is feeling like there is a lot of talk, but no action to make this happen.  Help her, and the rest of us, help you enjoy your game time!  Also, thank you to all who do attend events and communicate, you make my day (and I would think that of all the other event leaders!)  I'll be available and helping as much as I can for these runs, and when somebody is ready to step in I'll step aside on Saturday.  Same with so many of the Sunday people.  We want to see everyone else get their shot, and succeed.  So help Prissy help you, please!
